    Sep 21, 2010, 1:17 PM EDT

    Atlanta received some good news yesterday, as an MRI exam revealed merely tendinitis in Takashi Saito’s sore shoulder.

  4. Finally! Chris Carter gets first hit after starting career 0-for-33

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    It still isn’t very pretty, but .029 sure looks a lot better than .000 for Chris Carter. After beginning his career in a brutal 0-for-33 slump that included 13 strikeouts, Carter finally delivered his first hit last night with a sharp single to left field off White Sox reliever Scott Linebrink. And then the A’s…

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    Still sore after tweaking his left knee over the weekend, Joe Mauer is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam today.

  8. Bobby Abreu has more 20-20 seasons than anyone outside of the Bonds family

    Sep 20, 2010, 4:48 PM EDT

    Last night Bobby Abreu reached 20 homers and 20 steals for the ninth time, which is one short of the all-time record shared by Barry Bonds and … Bobby Bonds. That a father and son are the only two players ever with double-digit 20-20 seasons strikes me as one of the more underrated amazing facts…

    Sep 20, 2010, 3:49 PM EDT

    Last week the Cardinals announced that they were shutting down Jaime Garcia in an effort to limit the 23-year-old rookie’s workload after he threw just 38 innings last season while coming back from Tommy John surgery, but now they’re apparently rethinking those plans. Garcia will be skipped in the rotation Thursday for the second straight…

    Sep 20, 2010, 3:19 PM EDT

  12. Brian Anderson's conversion to pitching has gone well so far

    Sep 20, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    Two months ago Brian Anderson made the transition from outfielder to pitcher after the 28-year-old former first-round pick hit just .227 in 355 career games. He first headed down to rookie-ball, quickly moved up to Single-A, and then finished the year with a stint at Triple-A, combining to throw 17.1 innings with a 2.08 ERA…

    Chris Carter went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts yesterday before being removed from the game defensively, making him 0-for-32 with 13 strikeouts (and one walk!) to begin his big-league career. Carter’s brutal hitless streak is the longest by any player to start a career since Vic Harris went 0-for-36 for the Rangers in 1972. Harris rebounded…

  20. Hanley Ramirez out of the lineup with lingering elbow pain

    Sep 17, 2010, 5:19 PM EDT

    Following an off day yesterday Hanley Ramirez wanted to be in the Marlins’ lineup tonight despite a sore left elbow, but manager Edwin Rodriguez opted to rest him: His elbow was sore on Wednesday, so on Wednesday he said he’d try to play and I didn’t like what I saw. He came in today and…

    Sep 17, 2010, 4:17 PM EDT

    Joe Torre announced that he’ll step down as Dodgers manager after the season, with Don Mattingly replacing him, but will the 70-year-old future Hall of Famer look to manage elsewhere?

    Sep 17, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    Gordon Beckham was out of the White Sox’s lineup yesterday and Ozzie Guillen indicated that he may opt to shut him down for the season rather than let him try to continue playing through a hand injury: Obviously he wants to play, but I’ve seen this kid swing the bat for a year and a…

    Sep 17, 2010, 2:48 PM EDT

Here are some quotes from the four-time All-Star first…

    Sep 17, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT
